The signature of this Kolsch is its malt roundness and noble hopping. We like to ferment with Wyeast Kolsch yeast to get a slight fruitiness of an ale with the clean lager-like flavor palette. We like to pitch Kolsch yeast in the 58-62F range and let the heat from fermentation ramp the temperature up to around 65-68F. However this yeast ferments well any where between 56-70F. Watch out, this yeast can be volcanic! We recommend using half reverse osmosis or distilled water and half tap water for a finished beer more true to style.

Easy to brew and amazing!
We brewed this as one after we brewed the Hop Truck. This is just amazing. One of the easier kits to brew but a very flavorful Kolsch. Give it a try and you won't regret it.

Less bitter than IPAs
I'm not a big IPA fan. Most are too bigger for me. This kolsch, at 22-28 IBU, has just enough hops to give you a full-bodied hoppy taste experience, yet without turning your stomach from all the bitterness. Why drink double IPAs when a good kolsch can fill the bill? (Another bonus is that this kit is very easy to make.)
